A word of thanks to all those who came along to support the Language and Culture Night that was held in Millstreet Community School on Friday 12th May 2017. Fourteen nationalities from three continents were represented! Thanks also to those who prepared food for the evening. It was a night for celebrating cultural diversity which will be remembered for a long time.
